The IRF is proud to partner with many international organizations and other stakeholders in addressing road safety, contributing to the UN Decade of Action, and working to alleviate road deaths and injuries. Some of our important partnerships include:
UN Road Safety Collaboration: The IRF has been a proud member of the UNRSC since its first meeting in October 2004. The Collaboration is an informal consultative mechanism whose members are committed to road safety efforts and in particular to the implementation of the recommendations of the World report on road traffic injury prevention. The goal of the Collaboration is to facilitate international cooperation and to strengthen global and regional coordination among UN agencies and other international partners to implement UN General Assembly Resolutions and the recommendations of the World report thereby supporting country programs.
UN Economic Commission for Europe: The IRF's on-going partnership with the UNECE Transport Division provides an opportunity to complement each organization's road safety-related activities and initiatives. Utilizing this important and strategic partnership, the IRF is able to draw upon UNECE's major role in addressing the main components of road traffic safety and convening the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Prevention of Road Accidents (WP.1).
University of Birmingham (UK): The Senior Road Executive Programme, run by the University of Birmingham in association with the IRF, consists of four linked, 3 days, intensive residential courses delivered by experts of international repute.
